Probably the best-sounding sbd of this set you're going to find; no high-pitched whine and everything's transferred beautifully.
85 was quite the experimental year for the band - while I never really put a lot of emphasis on how setlists influence the quality of a show, in 85 they played around with it so much and so often that you can't help but measure the list in with the playing.
We begin with a rockin' triptych medley - Jer ending the set clearly in full Nashville Skyline-mode (hey, that move may indeed have saved his voice!)....and end with another. Matthew Kelly on harp is always a treat.

Magic from '85
I wasn't a huge fan of mid 80's Dead till I listened to this show! It got me into the great year of 1985! This has to be one of the best shows of that year. The Truckin>Smokstack Lightning is phenominal and the China>Rider is killer! Listen to this whole show with this replacing the other SBDs first part of set 1.

Seeking Copy of This
Does anyone have this first set to trade or seed ? My hard drive crashed and I lost my copy. Please drop me an e-mail if you can hook me up: edolexajdmba at yahoo.com. This IS one of the best first sets ever - the Peggy-O is my all-time fav.

Crisp and clean -- w/ something other than caffeine. CC>Rider is very patient - Jerry's pickings are yumyum, voice is ahh-eye-t, then Phil comes in strong...BOom BoOm! They miss some notes here and there -- but hey, so did I.
Brent is great - even Bobby's got it going on.

One of the Best First sets
This is by far one of my favorite later era first sets. Its also possibly one of the best china riders ever

better than the other sbd
This one sounds cleaner. Too bad it's just the 1st set.
